A female suicide bomber exploded herself Friday in front of a mosque in the Black Sea city of Ordu, injuring one person, police said.

In a separate incident, a bomb exploded in southeastern Turkey as a vehicle passed by, injuring two people, officials said.

The explosions follow the worst street rioting in Turkey in a decade, which has left 16 people dead, mostly Kurdish rioters. A militant Kurdish group had vowed to step up attacks to avenge those deaths.
